Linsey Allan, 37, who saw the rescue, said: “The family were screaming, ‘Help us, we can’t get out and we’ve got a baby’.

“Then the room filled with smoke, the lights in the room went off and we didn’t hear them again. I was in tears and shaking. It was incredibly traumatic, horrendous.”

All three were taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation before being released.
